Strengths: A very physical player; nice footwork in low post situations; aggressive off the dribble; can easily create her own shots; solid rebounder; good passer out of double teams; strong with back to the basket; a very ahtletically gifted player on both ends; makes smart decisions; always aggressive and has shown that she can carry her team;
 
Weaknesses: Might need to add range to her game; not as active on defense as she could be; a bit undersized if she plays center in the WNBA; not a good free throw shooter; prone to foul trouble; often out of control off the dribble, leading to possible offensive fouls; prone to high number of turnovers, especially with traveling; needs to work on free throw shooting; not really a strong defensive presense; multiple knee injuries have taken their toll, as evidenced by decreased scoring ability and the tendency to "play with fear"
